The Adams County Board of Developmental Disabilities (ACBDD) believes that all persons with developmental disabilities have a right to be fully included in the community in which they live. It is the Board's belief that each enrollee should be assisted to develop physically, emotionally, socially, and mentally to his/her fullest potential. This will enable each person to take his or her rightful place in the community.  It is also the board’s intent to have services provided in such a way as to protect the rights, enhance the dignity, and promote the growth of each person served.

The integration of people with developmental disabilities into their communities is the cornerstone and mission of the Board's philosophy. The Board has a vision that each person with a disability has an opportunity to share in the same quality of life that is available for others in their community. The community is not only a place to live, work, and play, it is a sense of belonging among all people.
